Our Story


Here you will find the story of how Anna’s Garden, Home & Wellness came to be.

We trace our roots back to 1960 when Alberico “Nonno” Mastronardi came to Canada, along with his son Enrico “Henry”. The two settled in Essex County and began working in the fishing and agricultural industry.

Beginning with a few small greenhouses, the family specialized in growing tomatoes and cucumbers.

Enrico met the young, beautiful Anna and the two were married.

With both family and business growing—oldest son Albert was born and their small roadside stand began selling flowers and a wide variety of produce too.

Soon Enrico and Anna welcomed their second son, Rudy into the world.

…and then came their youngest, and only daughter, Marlene.

Business was blooming and Anna’s Flowers officially opened its doors at 1911 Seacliff Drive in Kingsville, where it still remains today. From a modest beginning to a full plant and flower showroom that spans over 30,000 square feet.  Anna fondly remembers their daughter Marlene at the fruit stand, at only four years old helping her parents sell produce and flowers along with her big brothers, Albert and Rudy.

Alberico “Nonno” Mastronardi passed away, leaving behind an abundance of good memories that customers still lovingly share today. The Mastronardi’s business is centered around family, determination and hard work. Alberico “Nonno” lead by example and these attributes will be passed on for years and generations to come.

44 years and 4 generations later, Anna’s Flowers is responsible for growing and retailing over 4 acres and more than 10,000 varieties of flowers and plants, as well as a tasty selection of local produce and specialty food products. Anna’s also carries seasonal home and garden décor, hand-crafted and customized planters, and always the latest trends in gardening. A wide variety of carefully selected health and wellness products, which are sourced locally whenever possible, have also been added to the product line-up.
